Hello my friends! I'd like to share with you a card I made with gorgeous Dahlia stamp set and amazing Sparkle N Sprinkle Velvet Glitters.
Card base is A5 folded in half. For the matting layer I placed 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape to the edges of 9,9 x 14,3 mm white paper and covered it with Tiger Orange Velvet Glitter. To avoid white edges peeking out from the side I colored the edge with matching marker.
White layer is partially embossed with embossing folder. First I embossed upper side and then lower part of the paper. After that I used a Scor-Pal to make embossed lines both sides of the cap. Cap between the lines was big enough to fit two strips of 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape side by side. After removing the protective sheet I covered it with Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter. I stamped a sentiment on top of it. Edges of the embossed layers are inked with China Blue distress ink.
To make the dimensional flower I stamped four big flowers, colored them with Promarkers and fuzzy-cut them out, removing more of the outer layer from each flower. All layers are popped up with foam tape.
I also stamped three leaves, one middle flower and one flower bud. They all are colored with markers and fussy cut out. Flowers are adhered with foam tape on the middle and edges are clued down. They look a bit more dimensional like this way.
For the sparkling leaves I adhered a 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to a paper, used a leaves die and cut two off them. They all ware covered with Luau Green Velvet Glitter. After placing everything to the card, I added some blue color with markers to the Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter. A little tip: If you notice that some of the leaves are completely covered with flower, snip them off and use it on other place.
